Is Your AC Unit Ready For Fall?

November 22, 2022 | Blog

Summer heat in Southern Louisiana can make it hard to plan ahead for fall weather and cooler temperatures. When the leaves change color, are you confident that your AC unit is ready to produce hot air rather than cold air? At Surgi’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, our goal is to provide comprehensive and diverse heating and cooling services all throughout the New Orleans area.

Inspect Your Device

So what can you do to reduce the risks of your AC unit failing when the fall season comes around? Some of the best ways to prevent breakdowns are:

Check The Machine’s Mechanics

It’s always wise to examine your outdoor system before firing it up.

Doing this protects you from having to pay for expensive repairs or buying a whole new unit! Over time, debris such as dirt, branches, dust, leaves, rocks and animal droppings can become wedged inside your system and limit its ability to function properly. It is also wise to check the metal components and wiring within your machine and make sure that there are no holes, cracks, or corrosion. These issues can lead to severe leaks and permanent damage if left unfixed.

Clean Any Dirty Components

Does your AC or heating unit look filthy? If so, it’s time to thoroughly clean your machine so that you and your family can enjoy better airflow! Make sure to clear out your vents and remove any covers so that you can reach every area that may be accumulating dust or dirt. Dirty components are easily washed with tools like a washcloth, vacuum, or duster!

Replace Old Filters

Another way to ensure that your AC system is set to succeed is to check your filters. The components in an air conditioning unit wear out gradually, but air filters need to be switched every 30-90 days. Old filters can collect all kinds of pollutants, such as allergens, mold, dust, dirt, dander and dead skin!

Schedule a Maintenance Appointment

Once you’ve inspected your HVAC unit and replaced any parts that are easily accessible, it’s time to call in the experts. Homeowners who schedule a heater maintenance appointment before making the switch from cold to hot air deal with fewer risks when it comes to system failure. At Surgi’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, our technicians are reliable and can recognize the warning signs of an AC unit that needs some extra help.

The tune-ups we offer are a preventative measure that can help you save lots of time and energy in the long run- so don’t wait to schedule your appointment!

Surgi’s was very pleasant to deal with. Always courteous customer service. Received my annual A/C maintenance today from Troy Robert. He gave me a courtesy call to let me know when he was coming. He arrived promptly, and was very friendly and informative. Highly recommended! Thank you!

Very professional!

The technician, Rene, was very thorough and informative. He called before he was arriving to let me know when he would be there. It was in the window of time Surgis gave me. I will definitely use them for regular maintenance and future HVAC needs. Very professional!

He had all the parts that he needed and was able to resolve my problems in a few hours. My maintenance contract was reasonable and worth every penny. I receive excellent care. I highly recommend Surgi’s.
